My research career has focused on the evolution, population genomics and molecular epidemiology of a broad range of bacterial pathogens of humans and animals.

I have worked on the implementation of whole-genome sequencing (WGS) for molecular epidemiology and evolution of human pathogens, with a focus on Staphylococcus aureus and Klebsiella pneumoniae. I also have an interest in animal pathogens, and current project focus the “one health” perspective on antibiotic resistance. I was co-ordinator of a JPI-AMR consortium (SpARK) focused on the transmission of antibiotic resistant Klebsiella spp. in the environment in Northern Italy, was Co-I on the EPSRC (ReNEW) consortium working on environmental AMR  in south Africa, and currently co-I on MRC (GCRF-AMR) consortium OH-DART focusing on AMR in Thailand.

I was awarded the Zoological Society of London Scientific Medal in 2010, and am an ISI highly cited researcher for 2015.
